Val Bunn suffered another paralytic stroke at 3:30 Monday afternoon and died at 2:30 yesterday morning, never having regained consciousness. The first stroke occurred on Christmas day two years ago, from which he recovered slowly to almost his natural health. Several slight strokes since have shown their effects, but from each he would get out and come bravely uptown, saying he was still on top. The funeral will be held at the family residence at 3:30 tomorrow, Thursday afternoon, Rev. W. H. Underwood officiating. Valparaiso Bunn was born in Marengo, Calhoun County, Mich., May 1st, 1865, and seven children were born to them, but four of whom are now living, C. B. who lives north of Blair; Etta, Mrs. Sam Barrett, of Farnam, Neb.; Minnie, Mrs. J. M. Bolton, of Upton, Wyo.; and Herb, who lives a Minot, N. D. All the children living will be here for the funeral.
